North Carolina Science Blogging Conference '08

We had our session this morning on real time blogging in the marine sciences and it went great! We had about 15 in attendance, plus the five of us and the discussion was non-stop. I'm real proud of my co-moderators, Rick MacPherson, Jason Robertshaw, Karen James and Peter Etnoyer. I am also very proud and the audience, they embraced the unconference format there was never a dull moment and they all brought up great points and every person contributed. Jason was hard at work working the live video feed AND participating in the discussion. It is archived here (click on thumbnail under 'past posts') for your viewing enjoyment! The next couple posts will be on various parts of the conference.
